      Joplin vs Simplenote opinions
      Most users think Joplin is a great alternative to Simplenote.
      shikuz Joplin is simple, and it's great place for your notes. I get to have all my notes, on every device, anywhere, always securely synced via any service I choose. there are very few mature, free and open source note-taking solutions that offer all of that flexibility. But Simplenote is great too. :)

      Joplin's better than simplenote, because it's more features do help.

      CherryTree vs Simplenote opinions
      Most users think CherryTree is a great alternative to Simplenote.
      Cherry Tree is AMAZING. It works well with Windows and Linux. For Mac, there is talk of a package to be created... https://github.com/giuspen/cherrytree/issues/176 It does not crash (on ANY windows version or Linux system). Very fast and extremely lightweight for the amount of data one can have. I would recommend it ANY day.
